  1. If you look at the top of this blog you will see "Cruise Compass". Click on that then use the filter to see only HOS compasses. Find one that matches your itinerary and you can glean opening and closing times for all kinds of things. It's an awesome source for seeing what kind of activities/opportunities you will have on your cruise
  2. Watching your videos I am beginning to think I might have made a mistake....Alaska is #1 on my bucket list, so when it came time to finally book my own Alaska cruise I pulled out all the stops and splurged, spending the extra bucks to get the corner aft balcony room.....now perhaps I am overthinking this but it seems to me there would be a greater chance of seeing aquatic activity from a normal "side" balcony than from the aft as off to the sides is seas relatively undisturbed by the ship while to the aft is water being actively disturbed by the ship and therefore may be lacking in aquatic activity....hopefully I am wrong as everything else about the aft balcony seems to be a plus (room for 4 chairs!!)
  3. Crap!! You just cost me thousands of dollars. haven't even gone on my first Alaskan cruise (Radiance in 2020) and now already know i need to book a second so i can see Sitka (really want to go to Raptor Center)
  4. ummmmmm.....was on Liberty the week before this and while the app does not have the planner it DOES have the compass and you can easily move things from the compass to your personal calendar
  5. If that is true then there really is no way to clearly state this BOGO 50% sale as in reality that is not what it is! It's actually more of a "25% off sale" (gets you the same prices without the implication you have to buy 2)
  6. Since to take advantage of the deal you have to buy two packages, why not say "$94 USD for 2 adults per day"....or...."First adult $63 USD / Second adult $31 USD per day"
  7. Cincinnati doesnt have chili, they have overrated spaghetti sauce
  8. I found the Invicta prices to be comparable to that offered by other outlets. seems Invicta sets very high ($1000+) "retail prices"....that no one actually sells at! After seeing Invictas on-board I checked them out on-line after the cruise and found an Invicta I liked that the cruise didnt have at about the same price as the cruise offerings, so i bought it
  9. Found a bug this week. We have two cabins reserved (so two reservations linked together). On my app it shows my reservation and my room but it lists my son's excursions instead of mine in "My Calendar"......everything shows up fine on the normal on-line planner.
  10. Cool!! On that trip we visited Milan and sang at Easter mass in the Florence Cathedral...... they start the day with a parade that ends at the cathedral. Once there they have a float with fireworks. A firework in the form a a dove is propelled along a wire from the float to the cathedral. It is designed to hit the end of the wire and return setting off the fireworks on the float. A successful return means a good harvest.
  11. I had the distinct honor of singing in the Vatican. The acoustics are amazing. When the last note was sung the sound seemed to "roll" to the back of that amazing basilica. That was 44 years ago yet I remember it clearly.
  12. I dont know if I ever WENT to a YOLO....been to a lot of places but that was in my military career (spent 3 years in Holland and 4 in Gemrnay), I got to see Rome, Florence, and Venice in my senior year in High school in a choir competition.... but as far as YOLO...that will be next year when I finally get to Alaska! Totally splurging on this one with an aft corner...havent quite gottem myself to commit to a bear excursion ($800+ per person)
  13. Spouses most definitely DO qualify!! So do dependent children
